• Down markets like those seen in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic can allow active managers to reposition portfolios in the attempt to take advantage of the recovery phase when it arrives.
  • WCM believes that while volatility can negatively impact a company’s price, their research into competitive advantage and analysis of corporate culture helps them make decisions about a company’s value over the long-term.
Foreign and emerging market securities may be subject to greater political, economic, environmental, credit, currency, and information risks. Foreign securities may be subject to higher volatility than US securities, due to varying degrees of regulation and limited liquidity. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. Equity securities are volatile and can decline significantly in response to broad market and economic conditions. Currency exchange rates between the US dollar and foreign currencies may cause the value of the Fund’s investments to decline. Growth stocks may be more sensitive to market conditions than other equities, as their prices strongly reflect future expectations. Concentrated investments in a particular region, sector, or industry may be more vulnerable to adverse changes in that industry or the market as a whole.
